FiiO, the music product company, launched the new BTR1 DAC & aptX Bluetooth amplifier in India. The amplifier is priced at Rs. 3990 and now available for purchase. You can buy the FiiO BTR1 from online stores, local retailers and FiiO’s official site.
With many smartphones starting to discard the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack, users find it inconvenient with old headphones. However, ordinary Bluetooth devices can be convenient to use but cannot satisfy the high demand for sound quality. Aiming this FiiO has launched the DAC & aptX Bluetooth amplifier, BTR1.
The FiiO BTR1 uses the high performing AK4376 DAC to perform digital decoding duties. Compared to the typical Bluetooth integrated solution, its decoding capability (up to 384 kHz / 32 bit audio), as well as its output power and signal-to-noise ratio, are all noticeably better.
BTR1 compatible with both iOS and Android devices, it also supports TRS and TRRS CTIA headphones. The BTR1 supports Bluetooth 4.2 with an effective transmission distance of up to 10 meters as well as the SBC, AAC and aptX audio formats. It also supports Bluetooth voice calls with its built-in omnidirectional microphone that captures audio with much higher quality than typically used in phones.
The built-in rechargeable lithium battery can be fully charged in just 2 hours and can last more than 8 hours. The blue and red lights on the BTR1 let you know instantly if your unit is on, pairing, under the low battery or charging with a simple glance.
The BTR1 comes in a sleek aluminium alloy body finished in black, giving the robust yet attractive look. Its compact yet stylish package means you can either put it in your pocket or clip it onto your coat pocket or backpack shoulder strap or even attach it to your shirt pocket.
On the front of the BTR1 is a single button with which you can: turn on/off the unit, play/pause, pair with another Bluetooth device, answer/hang up the phone, activate EQ and other commonly-used operations. Located on the side are two volume keys that are designed to be easily felt and used without looking at them.
